Abstract

Bernard Moore (1850-1935) joined his father Samuel’s pottery aged 15. Throughout his career he was particularly interested in sang de boeuf (lit. oxblood) or flambé glazes, first used in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) in China. In 1905, he sold his business and became a consultant to Minton’s, Doulton, and Wedgwood. Mellor and Moore became friends through the British Ceramic Society, which Moore was instrumental in establishing. In 1982 Aileen Dawson wrote that Moore’s ‘encouragement of the young Dr Mellor [was] immensely important for the British ceramic industry.’
